Beware of God

about

I’m proud and excited to share my first original song release since last summer — “Beware of God,” a reggae-rock mashup influenced by some of my favorite bands, namely Nirvana and the Police.

I first recorded this tune with my Philadelphia band, The Movies, way back in the mid-‘90s, and it was a staple of my West Coast sets for many years, so it was time for an update.

If you like it, please share and help spread the word. Download exclusively on Bandcamp, and turn it up loud!

Rock,

lyrics

You won't find him in the morning
bright on the screen of your TV
And he won't help you in the evening
to buy you everything you see

You won't find him giving you love
behind the eyes of your new pet
You won't find him in computers
the ghost behind your Internet


But if you look around the corner
and stand to face your very soul
You'll find the words in your reflection
Of stories you've already told...

Beware of God

You won't find him in a steeple
Forgiving you for all your sins
You won't find him in your lover
your brother, or your next of kin

But if you look around the corner
and stand to face your very soul
You'll find the words in your reflection
Of stories you've already told...

He won't help you make a million
when there is so much suffering
You won't find him at a rock show
So pay attention when we sing...
